Interpreting the Data from your Smart Technologies to Create Meaningful Business Decisions
29th March 2021, 4:15PM – 5:15PM BST
All port operations now use more data than ever before. The next question for ports to consider is how best to interpret this data to assist your operations and make the best out of the decisions that you are making. So-called emerging technologies have now been in place at many ports for long enough now that they have begun to allow data analysts to isolate trends within individual data sets, allowing for more insight into what is happening at individual points in port operations. In this session, you will hear how this insight can be interpreted into the business decisions that ports need to take.
